While multiacquisition variable-resonance image combination (MAVRIC) is a recognized technique for metal artifact reduction in muskuloskeletal MRI, it is not widely described for MRI of the central nervous system. We investigate the value of this technique for MRI of the brain in patients with MR conditional metal implants and find that MAVRIC-T1 is superior to conventional FSE T1 in both qualitative and quantitative metrics.
